The only thing that stops the dust is the rain. It’s a sweet reprieve, but there is no middle ground. The land is either as dry as the Betty Ford clinic, or as wet as the ocean floor. Everything can be seen from the ridge overlooking Armadillo as John Marston gently bounces along atop...

Miyamoto Discusses His One "Bad" Game

Posted on Tuesday, June 18 @ 10:11:37 PST by Alex_Osborn

Shigeru Miyamoto, the brilliant mind behind many of Nintendo's most beloved franchises, recently shed light on one of his most underwhelming titles,Zelda II: The Adventure of Link.

During aPikmin 3demo,Kotakugot the chance to speak with Mr. Miyamoto. During their conversation, the outlet asked the game designer if he feels like he ever made a bad game,to which he replied with a simple "Yeah."

Naturally, Kotaku followed up by asking him which game that might be.Through a translator, he sort of double-backed on his prior answer, saying:"I wouldn't say that I've ever made a bad game, per se, but a game I think we could have done more with wasZelda II: The Adventure of Link."

So why NES adventure sequel? Miyamoto explained:
When we're designing games, we have our plan for what we're going to design but in our process it evolves and grows from there. InZelda II: The Adventure of Link, unfortunately all we ended up creating was what we had originally planned on paper.

I think specifically in the case ofZelda IIwe had a challenge just in terms of what the hardware was capable of doing.

So one thing, of course, is, from a hardware perspective, if we had been able to have the switch between the scenes speed up, if that had been faster, we could have done more with how we used the sidescrolling vs. the overhead [view] and kind of the interchange between the two. But, because of the limitations on how quickly those scenes changed, we weren't able to.


Interesting explanation, and certainly not the response I was expecting. Do you agree with Miyamoto's thoughts on Zelda II? Didyou find one of his other games to be more disappointing? Let us know in the comments below.
